It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of one of our own, Detective Denise Siano.

Detective Siano bravely battled breast cancer for 10 years. She left us Sunday April 26th.

Denise was a true fighter who treasured life, her family, and being a member of the Lower Makefield Police Department. She loved helping people. Her never ending smile, friendly demeanor and laughter gave little indication of her illness and her suffering. Her strength and courage was an inspiration to all of us.
Denise was hired in 2002 as a patrol officer and was promoted to Detective in February of 2010. She worked with the South-Central Bucks Special Response Team (SWAT) as a hostage negotiator. Her fellow negotiators remember her expertise in negotiating with persons in crisis using her calm, reassuring voice. She was an excellent detective and an accomplished polygraph examiner.

Most Importantly, Denise Siano was a sister to all of her brother officers and she deeply cared for each of them. We will carry on with heavy hearts and miss her warmth and exuberance each day. Our angel is now in heaven safe and sound talking with the other angels and watching over us.

With great sorrow,
Chief Kenneth Coluzzi
